of how that is defined. >> have another question? >> i am a local free-lance journalist here. a couple of years ago, i had a friend. we were trying to figure out the feasibility of starting a nonprofit journalism in denver, and i remember coming across this corporate structure that i believe vermont, maybe one other state, uses in the country, but it is called a low profit limited liability company, and it is a structure that is meant to allow for profit but also to allow for tax-exempt status for donations. i found it really interesting. i found it surprising that other states did not have a similar model. this could also be a model to help budding companies in the future by allowing them more flexibility in how they acquire financing. i'm curious how many of you on the panel are familiar with this type of model and also, i guess this would be directed towards beye -- senator yee, how difficult it would be to bring this model to california. thank you. >> relative to establishing a new financial instrument or a new financial business, it is possible -- i think the question is what is t

of all that you do has an impact on our job situation and local economy, and to highlight all of the great work that we can do together to ensure that the sectors that you all represent, the sectors that you work for, that you employ people for connaught is one of the greatest sectors in san francisco. i hope we will take the opportunity of the america's cup to showcase our clubs, our restaurants, our nightlife events. as someone who represents the broadaway neighborhood, an area of town that i used to spend a lot of time in when i was in my 20's -- but actually, very few locals take the time to head to the beach on broadway. our neighborhoods are coming together to say that broadway is open to the rest of the world as well as san francisco. i want to put san francisco back on the map when it comes to music. to make sure that we have the type of entertainment that we used to be renowned for. and those of you that work in our bars and clubs, i want to make sure that we are trading the kind of destinations that we look forward to spending time with you. i know on behalf of my co
that when there is something that we cannot resolve at the local level. san francisco is a place that we are very proud of. we got kicked out of our office, just by the landlord and the release. there is a lot of political pressure on us just to keep the political office closed. as most of my staff will tell you, there was really one person who thought it was the perfect idea to stay in san francisco and pay the market rent, and that was me. maybe state bureaucrats did not like that some much, but at least one of them did, and that was me. we are delighted to be in san francisco. it is important for us to be on the ground. we have 25 offices around the state. because of groups like this and how supportive you are and how hard we try to work with our license fees and the public, despite all of the challenges you would expect, san francisco is one of the few places where calls come up to my level. i have all sorts of things that are -- that seem very, very challenging all the time, all over the place. you guys are about the least i hear of, and that is a great thing. i want to thank you fo

on the case. we want to work monthly with the staff and local power to get this under way in the right way, i would always mention as far as outreach goes advocates now think the key is the opt out rate and the initial rate that we give people next year. we strongly believe that the opt out could be lower than 50% and using the proper marketing mechanisms and shares and we strongly believe by spring even if you have a max ten or $20 we can get lower than that through mechanisms that are being worked on through local power so let's stay -- >> thank you mr. brooks. is there any other members of the public that would like to speak? seeing none and public comment is closed and thank you mr. brook for mentioning all of the advocates involved over the years. if you look at what happened over the years the advocacy was really instrumental and making it clear there is interest in this, and i think in all of us share the concern that making sure that the people who participate in the program are people that want to be in it, and you know along the lines of what commissioner avalos was saying that w
. but we also have a number of hotline numbers available for the police department rtion for the local agencies to contact us if they need some adistance from us in case some of their own systems do go down and we have our own infrastructure to support them as well. >> all right, thank you. i think this is an opportunity for us to open it up for questions and answers. i think we have some folks with microphones right over there, there's a gentleman. >> you talked a lot about network and grid resiliency. how do you guys approach your op center in context of resiliency of operations in terms of something like this ?oo ?a would you mind remeeting that one more time. >> you talked a lot about your grid and the resiliency. it's something we look at all the time if the ship sinks, who is the back up guy in charge. how do you guys approach that stuff. >> i'll go ahead and cover at least for pg&e. in terms of our emergency centers and understanding what's happening there, we have our primary emergency center here in san francisco. we have on call personnel for both gas and electric and o
and local relationships, cross boundaries between the multi disciplines in the utilities. we are able to cross those lines in the counties and step up to state operations so everybody is operating in a common operating picture so everybody understands what's available not only in their jurisdiction, but what kind of resources we can bring to bear, short and long-term, how distant those are, what the qualifications are. we have master resource catalogs designed just like fire scope and cal fire in which we have built strike teams from our utilities, strike teams from water companies. they simply make a call and tell us we need 10, 12, 15, it's our obligation to put that together and get it to them. they are worried about the incident in their jurisdiction which they have to correct. it's our responsibility to reach bond those borders as their extension to bring in the reserves that they need to maintain that kaupblt newt of operation and then where we function through the state utility operations center and the state operations center to make sure that we have that kind of access an
at the most local level first. so, it's appropriate to hear from captain stow and the network of partnerships that she's dealt here in the bay area, but we have this lattice work that goes across my entire pacific region. and then i need to focus on what do i do in the event of a threat right now in dealing with the arctic. what if i have a deep water horizon spill there? because now it affects the nate and i have indigenous tribes of that part of the world. and how do i flow resources there, recognizing the navy doesn't have ice breakers and our nation has one. so, we do a lot of work with canada when we're starting to work on those contingencies. but we look at the national response framework. it was rewritten post katrina. and another key part of partnerships, when i was the federal on scene coordinator during deep water horizon, it's not in the national response framework, but every parish president, every mayor, every governor had a coast guard liaison officer at the oak pride and above level. so, if they didn't like how the response was going, go to my liaison officer. don't go to ander

and certified to respond to local domestic disaster situations as well. i had mentioned that we had 22 nations participating in rimpac and this slide is a representation of the military and civilian partners that we had participating in this event. and we had many, many international partners and we had a lot of domestic partners: medical and military editionary partners as well. okay, this is our command and control slide. we took a lot of care to get this right. we wanted to make sure that we portray that we're there to assist and support the government that has requested our service to be there. we wanted to make sure that our forces that are responding in a military environment go in with the right knowledge and the right attitude and you can see the tactical unit at the bottom there and the crisis response civil military operations center that was there to provide the command and control of those tactical units responding on the military side, this provided a perfect environment and opportunity for them to be able to interact with the civilian partners and provide the most appropriate
is to coordinate response between state and local governments and his focus, his direction to us really comes down it 3 things. he asks us to always plan for the worst case, the maximum of the maximums and it's go to see the department of defense is incorporating this within the catastrophe policy that was spoken about a little earlier. no. 2, he asked us to sppbld and are able to stabilize an incident within 72 hours. his mantra is think big, go big, go fast but not fast. 3, he asks us to do this within a whole community approach, not only it make sure we utilize the whole community in the response because there's much more responders past the federal-state responders. there's the public being responders and there's many others, private industry need to be in that so we try to integrate that into a whole community concept. and also to make sure when we respond we respond to take into account the whole community. not everybody looks like me and you but we need to be able to take into account and service our elderly, infants and others that may need special assistance. with that, the purpose of th
to take extra steps to make local calls. ann reuben is live to tell us how they are preparing for it. >> reporter: there has been an ad campaign warning people for weeks the way you dial in the 408 area code is about to change, now in order to make a local call you will dial as if you were dialing long distance. starting tomorrow in the south bay get ready to dial some extra digits. >> i didn't know it was coming up so soon but -- >> that's right if you live in the 408 area code you will need to dial all digits to make even a local call. the reason, the introduction of a new carry code, 669. >>> it will actually be what is called an overlaw district where the old 408 numbers and new sick 69 ones will exist in the same space, not every 1 is happy about the changes. >> pretty soon you will have to dial 50 numbers in order to get wherever it is you are trying to call and it just doesn't make sense. there has got to be a better solution. >> the california public utilities commission says this was the best option and because of cell phones and add technology the existing prefixes were bei
communities project, so this is a valencia and streetscape, local streets and roads, a pavable rehabilitation project. new features, the bicycle and pedestrian improvements pot have previously projects could only be funded through larger streetescape projects or a bicycle project could be funded if it was on the bicycle network. those restrictions have been lifted. we can fund virtually any pedestrian project including education and outreach, a flexible category. and the school portion. we decided to call that out and focus in on a small amount of funds to look at infrastructure projects. the schedule we are working with right now, the funding framework, which we just looked at, the priority schedule, released today, will release projects after the board action next week. initial application also be due in october. we are working on getting a little of a previous release out a week early, making sure the application is up and online and projects will begin looking at it and understand what we are looking for. we are doing a two-part call for projects, so the first initial round will be due fo
and far and using locally sourced ingredients. as we observe national food day i wanted to recognize the restaurant that has significant impact on our business community and neighborhood and also uses the power of food to reach diverse communities and those in need. in addition to the positive impact on its surrounding neighborhood they also participate in the episcopal community services conquering homelessness through employment and food services or commonly known as the chef's program which trains homeless adults in the operations of the culinary industry. it is incredibly important that we as a community give back to others, and jeff and allison promote a culture of giving through their restaurants. i would like -- and you empowered employees and a wonderful thing so without any additional delay i will like to restaurant them with the 2012 appreciate honor for district five. >> thank you very much. [applause] >> thank you. we're very honored. my husband laurence hoped to be here as well and jeff and i business partner and we are lucky to be included in this month's honorium a
systems and our property. i just feel like the local -- i feel like the shelter monitoring committee is being ignored. jane kim you are doing some work with that and i would appreciate if would you sends one of your legislative aide. >> excuse me, circumstance sir, we have a rule in the board that permits speakers from targeting certain supervisors. >> maybe you should send your legislative aides. maybe jane kim shouldn't be the only one trying to make the shelter systems better. i feel like the sf hot team is really being ignored in this equation. they will put someone off the streets and put them in a house and put their lives together. they have already cut them once and i would like at least people to start bringing them into the equation. the other thing that i am having a problem with. it just seems that everybody is disconnected from each other. like the san francisco male health association, the sro task force, the local homeless coordinating board and the shelter monitors are not really coming together to deal with this problem. >> thank you very much. i'm sorry, i reali
for local clean energy and local clean alliance and without that group we also wouldn't be here and i want to put out the kudos to all those folks. they did incredible work. as to next steps i think the measure that was passed at the board of supervisors on the 18th was exactly the right way to pass it, and i am glad the amendments that got passed got passed and the ones that didn't, didn't and i think it's important to recognize the concerns that the mayor is raising are valid concerns and want to make sure folks know that the advocates share the concerns and as i said in the finance and budget committee and if we roll it out and it's not popular and people get freaked out for the price or didn't know what they were going to spend that is not good for clean energy. it's bad for it. it would turn people away from it, so you have the commitment of the advocates that we will stay on the case. we want to work monthly with the staff and local power to get this under way in the right way, i would always mention as far as outreach goes advocates now think the key is the opt out rate and the
to redistribute those to rate payers. as of now transit and other local agencis are not part of the rate payer package that would receive money back. there is discussion about introducing legislation that would return some of that back to the rate payers. next is the project initiation document. there were two bills that were passed dealing with project initiation, one would not pass, ab1780, introduced by the self help county. this would have shifted funding and review and approval to the local agencies -- sorry, from the local agencies to the state highway account that did not pass. as a result, andb1477 was introduced and compromised at was at the end of session. the result from the locally funded developments and oversight will not be charged indirect costs. the reimbursement for both oversight and development. this assumes the highway account funding for state and joint-sponsored projects. lastly, just wanted to give you some quick look aheads for next year. we are looking at proposition 1b. that proposition coming to an end, which ultimately means transportation funding. brian kelly, sec
and local water system manager for the san francisco public utilities commission and finally but not least, romel an jell lus, manager for san francisco wireless. i have drafted several questions for our panel to answer and will hopefully have time at the end to take questions from the audience. before we start our panel discussion, i wanted it share with you what we are doing in san francisco to advance our lifeline's resilence we are the first major u.s. city to (inaudible) post katrina where he saw firsthand where a critical role these systems played in the city's recovery. i am honored to chair the council because i feel it's crucial that the public sector work side by side with our private sector partners to do everything we can today to ensure we will meet the needs of our residents in the days, weeks and years after a disaster. the objective of the lifeline council are to develop and improve collaboration in the city and county across regions regularly -- to develop and improve collaboration in the city and across the region by regularly convening a group of senior level operation
where local artists come together and different san francisco communities form and strengthen our common bond. i grew up in plaza east public housing. it was a tough place back then, as a number of places in the district still are. the economic and family circumstances for everyone were pretty dire. i saw family and friends lost to the streets, to prison and death including two of my siblings, i saw terrible poverty, crime, drugs, hopelessness and violence and joblessness but that was not all that we had. those people that i grew up have something else, a fighting experience resilience, those people found it in themselves to help their neighbors family and friends however they could. we relied upon each other and out of the crisis we created a great community. this is the spirit of san francisco. and that is why i am so thrilled to be able to speak to you today and now, because so many of you watching are my family, my friends, people who form the same communities that raised me up from difficult beginnings into the woman i am today. i can think of no more important calling than to use t
